Re: capture mjpeg-streamer stream to file NOT jpgs
said by dlsauers:A quickie way:
Any ideas ? ? ? I am coming up dry in searches ...Thanks.
wget -O outpufilenamep.mjpg --user xxx --password pass http://127.0.0.1:8090/?action=stream
Where outpufilename you would change to your desired name
user and password are only needed if you setup the mjpeg-streamer with such and you would need to adjust from 8090 to what ever port your using.
To convert it to something like mp4 you can use ffmpeg
ffmpeg -i outfilenamep.mjpg testing.mp4
You will/may need to tweak the settings on ffmpeg to get desired framerate, quality etc...
Note: VLC will play the mjpeg stream natively, as will mplayer but it requires the .mjpg to work.
There may be something else that can capture the mjpeg stream better than wget, curl?, something else? ? ... but off the top of my head.... thats what I've got....
